Guestbook comments from the owner

We travel from Maui each year to vacation at the Tardy Home in Newport Beach, California. It is well worth the 5-hour plane ride to spend time at this beautiful location, with all vacation amenities at your fingertips. This newly renovated home offers our family the opportunity to step out the door to beautiful pristine beaches, just footsteps from restaurants, shopping and fun activities for the children.

The Tardy Home was newly renovated, spotlessly clean, well stocked and “right on the sand”, exactly as pictured and advertised.

Yolanda is a true asset. Amazingly friendly, always available for assistance, flexible with our schedule and an A+++++++ property manager!

I had lost 2 gold charms during our June, 2017 visit. She contacted us to tell us they were found, polished the charms and sent them to our home. This incident is only one of the many reasons why our family makes our vacations at the Tardy Home an annual tradition! She and her team are trustworthy, honest and unbelievably a pleasure to work with. Yes, we all agree that considering all the many different family vacations we have experienced over the years (including Maui) our vacations at the Tardy Home ranks # 1!

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

Great location! Garage space very tight for two cars so check beforehand if you have to share the garage. Could do with some microwaveable plates as all plates and bowls are melamine. Otherwise very clean , well stocked and we were well looked after! Would recommend this VRBO!

Perfect Newport Beach Rental for groups!

  • 5 of 5

This oceanfront rental is amazing! We had 7 people stay comfortably at one time. The view alone is breathtaking, along with the open kitchen, any appliances you could need, and a clean modern feel.

Access to the beach, coffee shops, boardwalk, etc was invaluable along with the incredible sunsets and sunrises that you can see over each pier from your own private deck!

Owner was very responsive and professional throughout our entire stay.

We cannot say enough good things about the landlord and the place itself.

Not what we expected

  • 2 of 5

We came to this beach house for a nice family getaway. The pictures of this home are not accurate. This home is SO outdated! IT was NOT clean when we arrived. We found cheerios and dust. The beds are small, uncomfortable and the bedding is old. The carpet made me want to wear shoes and socks at all times. The bathrooms are gross! The only thing that has been updated on this house in YEARS are the countertops. Things were falling apart, window screens have holes so bugs get in. The place needs a serious paint job. The cabinets are falling apart. The only great thing about this house is the LOCATION! IT is amazing to hear the ocean, once the loud partying that happens at night goes away. restaurants and shops are steps away. The washer and dryer are old and coin operated. Bring $! Its $2 for wash and $2 for a dry. Thank goodness we LOVE the beach and spent as little time as we could at the house. We ate out every meal because the kitchen grossed me out. So disappointed

Owner's Response: Hello, We have made lots of improvements to the house and added a new updated kitchen, new cabinets, new carpet, new glass window and replaced a lot of the old stuff with new stuff and painted the house inside & out. Thank you and the new pictures are attached.

Love the Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Everything was EXACTLY as portrayed by the owner. FABULOUS location ON the sand and a couple of blocks from the Newport Pier. Our family has been vacationing at this very home for 12 years. We love it so much is feels like our own. We would never go anywhere else. We rise to the sound of breaking waves and seagulls, enjoy breakfast on the deck before a full day on the beach building sandcastles and romping in the surf. We return to the deck for some relaxation and “people watching” on the boardwalk. As we enjoy the setting sun over Catalina and the Pier, we Bar B Que on the deck. After an evening stroll on the boardwalk, we enjoy a quiet evening watching the large flat screen TV above the gas fireplace which we often use to provide that “cozy” home feel. Then we retire to the lovely “Tommy Bahama” style bedroom for a good night’s sleep before beginning another day in paradise. We park our car and never use it.
